The characteristics of screen print mesh size
The mesh of the silk screen mesh is a parameter that shows the width of each square hole on the fabric. It has a great influence on the printing accuracy of printed images and characters. The unit of measurement is mm or um. Generally, the mesh opening should be three times that of the solid ink particles.
Think of screen printing through a screen door. This grid is very rough and has large holes. It is used for extremely low-detail designs and inks with large particles. For example, glitter ink with thicker particles.
When you need a large area of ink or text, this medium coarse grid can do the job. Since the grid has larger holes, please stick to thicker ink for printing.
This detailed count shines brightly on automatic printers. It can easily put light and white ink on dark fabrics. It can handle up to 45 lpi halftones, but it should not be used for four-color printing or detailed halftone printing.
Polyester (PET) screen printing mesh fabric features:
1) High tension and good resilience.
2) High structural strength.
3) Excellent printing durability.
4) Excellent acid resistance and organic solvent resistance.
6) Low hygroscopicity, hardly affected by humidity.
7) Good heat resistance, better than nylon.
8) Anti-ultraviolet rays.
